Does precum come from the Cowper's gland? Does urine kill sperm?

I am a bit confused about precum. Does it come from the Cowper s Gland or from somewhere else? Does it initially contain sperm or does it pick up sperm on the way out? Does urine kill sperm? Does it wash sperm out? If a guy ejaculates a few days before he precums, how likely is it that the precum contains sperm (considering that urine may or may not kill sperm, but it washes sperm out of the urinary tract )? If the precum lands on the labia of a woman, not inside the vagin, is it likely for the woman to get pregnant, considering that the guy last ejaculated a few days before he precumed? It would be very appreciated if someone could answer these questions. Thank you very much in advance.

Thanks for your query.
1) Precum is a secretion of Coper's glands located in urethra.
2) It does not contain sperm at all.
3)Urine is acidic in nature hence sperm can not survive longer in urine and
any sperm in urethra get washed away with passing urine.
4) Sperms can not survive more than few hours after ejaculation.
5)Woman can not get pregnant with only precum even though it is deposited in Vagina.
